  • The song played in the background as Ned and Edna go dating is "Heaven Must Have Sent You" by the Elgins.
  • Joey Kramer (drummer for Aerosmith) refers to "Walk This Way" and "Love in an Elevator", two Aerosmith songs. The former song appeared in Flaming Moe's.

  • At the start of this episode, Lisa is seen in the school audience behind Miss Hoover. But, she then appears to make a speech for the school's girls basketball team, "Springfield Lady Pumas", as the equipment manager.
  • In this episode, when Ned catches Edna, he says that he never met her before, yet he briefly dated her in Alone Again, Natura-Diddly, after his wife, Maude, was killed.
